Hernando is a third generation coffee farmer who inherited two farms when her father Hernando Arcila passed away 20 years ago. For many years his focus was on producing high yields but since 2020 he enrolled in our single state program in search of producing high quality coffee in volumes. After one year of hard work Hernando is ready to offer the world a high quality coffee with two harvest per year and the intention of searching for a long term relationship.
La Glorieta – La Glorita is a 35-hectare farm located at 1400 m.a.s.l in Armenia, Quindio. They mainly grow Colombian traditional varieties such as Caturra, Castillo, and Typica. The weather in Armenia is warm, it is characterized by its mountainous geography and different bird species are everywhere. La Glorieta is a traditional farm so the farmer takes care of the soil by using good practices that help to regenerate the soil, such as organic compost, native tree planting, and weeds removal from the base of the coffee trees.
This coffee was exposed to a dry anaerobic fermentation period of 72 hours
with the pulp on. During this fermentation stage, ripe oranges and wine
yeast were added. The cherries were then pulped and placed to dry on
raised beds with ripe oranges placed amongst the coffee until the ideal
moisture content was achieved.
This microlot is 100% Caturra. This variety originated in Minas Gerais,
Brazil. It is a natural mutation of Red Bourbon. Caturra produces more
coffee and is more resistant to plant diseases than Bourbon.
